Recall Central: Chevrolet Silverado, GMC Sierra, Honda Accord, Honda Fit
2014 Chevrolet Silverado, 2014 GMC Sierra
The Problem: The passenger airbag in crew cab models of the trucks may not inflate in a crash, potentially causing more injuries to the passenger. General Motors says it doesn’t have any reports of crashes or injuries resulting from this problem, however.
The Fix: GM will inspect affected 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and 2014 GMC Sierra pickups and, if necessary, replace the airbag. The majority of the trucks affected are still unsold on dealer lots, and GM expects only about one percent of them will have faulty airbags.
Number Of Vehicles Potentially Affected: 843 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and 2014 GMC Sierra trucks.
2013 Honda Accord
The Problem: A problem with the fuel tank neck means that in some 2013 Honda Accords, the fuel pump may not properly seal with the tank. This could allow fuel to leak, potentially causing a fire.
The Fix: Honda will inspect the fuel tanks and replace them if necessary. The recall will begin August 2.
Number Of Vehicles Potentially Affected: 1659 2013 Honda Accords.
2012-2013 Honda Fit
The Problem: In April, the 2012-2013 Honda Fit was recalled because its stability control software could allow the car to slide excessively. The original recall of 43,782 vehicles only concerned Sport models of the Honda Fit, but it has now been expanded to add 48,138 base-model Fit hatchbacks.
The Fix: Honda will reprogram the electric stability control software for free.
Number Of Vehicles Potentially Affected: 91,920 2012-2013 Honda Fit hatchbacks.
